FREE SS 09 xxxxx "is-land" xxxxx includes Martin Howse, among other things an Emacs master living in Berlin where he has been running all kinds of workshops (mostly on free software and hardware) at his studio on Linienstr. 54. Martin has written extensively about Free Software and has engaged in many types of experiments: I heard about one of his projects in which he invited different people to a discussion, then started to process their voices and interrupt the easy and smooth...

Working concretely with the sound material of his computer, Julian throws you deep inside the object that you might spend most time with. You touch it, you carry it, you write to it, you might even talk to it, but do you love it? In fact, it is very likely that you...

FREESS 5 Miguel Prado "Dios aborrece una singularidad desnuda" Second solo release by the galician guitarist Miguel Prado (Volanté, Taumaturgia label). It requires confidence and a special sensibility to be able to combine the kind of radical guitar playing influenced by Derek Bailey & Bruce Russell with digital manipulation without falling into some cheesy dsp processing. By pushing lo-fi aesthetics and raw energy to their ultimate consequences, Miguel Prado achieves a truly...

Try to find a centre to this cd and you will be lost. Broken structures, desillusioned, desolate but delicate computer noise that wants to physically twist your head around. The rest is only happening in your imagination. Minimal yet brutal, this is noise beyond the ethics of volume! Anti-Copyright www.mattin.org www.freesoftwareseries.org

FREE SS 11 Loty Negarti Requiem for a Revolution Aitor Izagirre aka Loty Negarti originally from Getxo but now living in Donostia, is one of the most active agents in the Basque underground scene. His activities include running the zines Soliloquio and Pidgin (experimental and concrete poetry) and Hamaika, one of the best labels I have encountered in years. After Negarti's very impressive “antylogy ’0’, electronic chemical sound poem” published by the Basque/Galician net-label...

FREESS 10 Taku Unami malignitat 2 When improvisation becomes psychological! In this new recording by Taku Unami expectations are constantly twisted leaving the listener in a perplex and uncomfortable position. We never know what is next: a pig, the wind, a river, a beat, a nasty noise, silence, clapping, impatience, pleasure, sadism, humor, good taste, a horror movie... or the very nice and polite Unami that we all know. Taku Unami is a master of the on-off. The careful structure that holds...

FREE SS 08 PATO "clip_clap_crisis" Rubén Patiño aka Pato originally comes from Barcelona, a city he describes as being something in between Orwell's 1984 and Disneyland. Nevertheless he sometimes does the most brutal DJ sessions that I have heard. Pato is now living in Denmark doing some stupid sound course in which he already got into trouble by playing too loud. Pato is a total character, which you can already get a sense of in clip _clap_crisis. After living 3 years in Berlin, he...

FREE SS 14 Christian Galarreta "Computer Music Is Dead" In the cemetery of computer hardware, Christian uses his software only to document a derive into the detritus of matter, into the desolation of our times, into the nothingness of being. Nothing alive here and no hopes, just some sounds without pretending to grasp you. We live between 0 and 1's in a collapsing world so it is not strange that someone tries to find ways of documenting the death of our surroundings. No digital...

FREE SS 06 Hometown Feilding is the artist name from Mark Sadgrove, a New Zealander living in Tokyo. We all know about the whole kiwi noise scene but while most of it is rock orientated, New Zealand has some of the greatest musicians working with computers such as Rosy Parlane, Dion Workman, Richard Francis and Sandgrove. Mark is the probably the only programmer of all of them. Simulations is a playful collection of pieces with a warm and natural feeling to it. The more you listen to...

FREE SS 13 Fractured and minimal, this release is the passing of time interrogating your patience. Little sounds with no specific origin dissolves your aesthetics into a void. I am still a listener but what I am listening to? Nevertheless it brings pleasure to my ears and ideas to my brain. What do you want to find out about this music? Do you want to feel attracted to it? Do you feel that it tells you something? Improvisation, concrete music, reductionism... Nothing of these yet something...

FREE SS 02 KAKOFUNK "FRUTAMENTAL" Straight from Barakaldo (a workers area in Bilbao), Kakofunk is an eclectic artist that incarnates the most radical approach to music making. The first time that I saw Kakofunk playing live, it made me think of the music Sachiko M would have made after spending 16 hours in a factory working hard. While listening to "Frutamental" you can feel a sense of freedom which scorns genre divisions and narrow understandings of what electronic music...

Joaquin Lana "Jacobin Of Noise" FREESS 16 Gamberro y Makarra por excelencia, there is nobody in the whole Spanish noise scene that laughs more about the whole world than Joaquin Lana. This records sounds familiar but I don't know why. Actually I do know why. "Jacobin Of Noise" documents the sound of the guillotine cutting the heads of the royal computer music club. Nihilist noise in the era of digital hope. Anti-Copyright
